Where do you park?

Leader vs. Servant:

A well-known Leadership guru boasts in one of his bestselling books that he prays for a parking spot near the front. After-all, he's a Leader. He deserves a front row parking spot, just ask him.


Conversely, the healthy Spirit-filled Servant joyfully parks in the back of the lot, praying that the front parking spots remain open for the elderly, women with small children, and others who truly benefit from less walking to a store or restaurant (Mt 20:26-28).
As one who loves the Lord with all of his heart, and seeks to love others as much as he loves himself, the Spirit-filled Servant considers first the needs of others.

Are you focused on yourself or serving others?

Christ calls us to joyfully serve others, this results from our walking in the Spirit (Gal 5:22-23).

Lord, how may I serve and glorify you today?
Lord, by the power of the Holy Spirit, provide and direct my every thought, word, silence, stillness and action today.
God, you sent Christ to us as the ultimate example of serving and considering the needs of others--especially our need for the forgiveness of sins. Open my heart to always seek to live in your image by considering the needs of others, directing them to a communicative relationship with Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit.

See Christ, Believe Christ, Achieve with Christ!
